Numerous outlets reported on a new paper backing up the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 2009 Endangerment Finding. The Science  study, co-led by Chris Field and Noah Diffenbaugh, indicates scientific evidence supporting the EPA's regulation of greenhouse gases is even stronger and more conclusive now. The paper could strengthen challenges to proposed efforts to rollback emissions standards and carbon emissions regulations in the United States.
